“Excellent place to stay in Fes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

I highly recommend staying at Dar Fes Medina after staying 3 nights with my family.
From the moment we arrived Mohammed and his staff were very friendly and treated us like family.
We were given mint tea and cookies on arrival and were given tea or water when ever needed.
Mohammed arranged to pick us up from our bus, he also arranged a tour guide to take us through the medina which I recommend as we tried to find our way through and it was like a maize.
The breakfast was huge and we also had a dinner which was beautiful.
Our rooms were very comfortable and the dar itself was very beautiful with rugs and artefacts around. If your looking at staying anywhere in Fes I would recommend dar Fes Medina.

This gorgeous riad is just on the edge of the medina, within a ten minute walk to the blue gate in Fes. The owner, Mohammed, is a true gentleman and we felt like cousins. See my blog at http://whatlaurieloves.blogspot.com - the entry called "the end of work, the beginning of vacation" on May 26, 2014, for pictures and more.
We asked to be shown the store that has been in the family for five generations. Mohammed's father is a crack up at 81 years (or so) old. What a great experience.

We had a great 4 day stay at the Dar Fes Medina Ziat. Mohammed and his staff were very accommodating and helpful during our stay in Fes. They helped us plan our visit to Fes before our arrival and arranged our trip to Meknes and Volubilis. The breakfast is excellent. We also had a dinner which was excellent. I would highly recommend the Dar Fes Medina during your visit to Fes.

This is a very comfortable Riad not far from the Ziat gate. The hotel will send a car and driver to pick you up at the rail station or airport, but taking one of the red taxis to the gate and getting instructions from there is another option.

Mohammed welcomed us with mint tea and cookies. He can arrange tours for guests. We purchased a map of the Medina from one of the tobacco shops down the hill from the Museum Batha and found our way around the souks and old city. This works well if you have enough time and prefer to be independent.

Dinner prepared by the hotel staff was delicious and reasonably priced at 18 EUR for several salads, tagine of chicken, onions, and raisins, plus fruit for dessert.

Our room was cozy with a comfortable bed, bath, and air conditioning. A hair dryer was not in the room but you can get one from the front desk if needed.

We booked our stay through Booking.com--it's not clear on the booking.com site that the hotel does not accept cards. We are fine with paying cash but suggest that the policy be clearly posted and on the hotel website and Booking.com to avoid misunderstanding.

Mohammed and his staff are very helpful and work diligently to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. We would stay here again.

The Dar Fes Medina is a beautifully decorated guesthouse with exquisite furnishings and delicately fine architectural details. The owner comes from a prominent family of carpet merchants so the entire house displays tasteful examples of fabrics and textiles as well as mesmerizing tile work. It was an esthetic delight to spend three nights there. Our room was quite comfortable and we slept well. The owner/manager, Mohammed is an intriguing combination of humble and gracious host and authoritative leader of an excellent staff. The breakfasts were very nicely done and slightly varied each morning (wonderful fresh baked goodies were featured) . The optional dinners featured an excellent and exotic array of cooked salads that were delectable as a first of three courses. We sampled the Chicken Cous Cous and the Beef Tagine. Both were very good.The Dar Fes staff were very helpful and flexible, being particularly attentive to kindly attend to me with a tummy bug I arrived with from a trip to the desert. We had a wonderful stay and really did feel quite at home in this familial style bed and breakfast. It is an excellent value. The English spoken here is also excellent.

Room Tip: While the second floor is a climb, the advantage is that you are then closer to the very pleasant ro...

We stayed at this delightful Dar for the fourth time in four years at this delightful Guest House in Fes Medina earlier this month. In fact we were the first people ever to stay here in May 2010, to see our names first in the visitors book is a great honour. Each time it just gets better. A new addition is an evening meal option. We had the best tajine we have ever had, lamb and prunes. Staff could not be more helpful and the rooms are spotless. We hope to make our fifth visit before too long. We are always treated as one of the family.

Room Tip: The accommodation is on three floors, therefore if you are not so good at climbing stairs ask for a...
